DALLAS, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN) announced today that the Meridian, Mississippi Police Department used the COPsync Network™ to aid in the arrest of two murder suspects. The COPsync Network is an advanced communication and information sharing system that protects citizens from violence and domestic terrorism. Community and officer security is increased with advance warnings of dangerous people, real-time notification of crimes in progress, and the COPsync911™ threat-alert system to safeguard schools and keep America's children safer and protect other high-risk targets such as courthouses, government buildings and energy infrastructure. COPsync's systems can save minutes when seconds count, save lives and protect citizens and communities.
Dawn Ward, 40, and her daughter Taylor Carroll, 14, went missing from their North Carolina home on November 28. Several days later, the pair were discovered under 30 feet of water at the bottom of a rural well. Before Ward and Carroll were discovered dead and believed to be missing, police in Meridian, Mississippi, pulled over a car on a routine traffic stop. Using the COPsync Network, the officer discovered the car was stolen. Ward's estranged husband Jeffrey Ward and his brother Jerrett were arrested for driving a stolen vehicle. The brothers were then discovered to be suspects in the case of the missing North Carolina women.
COPsync CEO Ronald A. Woessner stated, "The convenient and instant return of information to officers in the field, via the COPsync Network, keeps police officers safer and allows for the swift apprehension of suspected criminals. The COPsync Network connects local law enforcement officers in real-time to a common data communications system, which enables officers to share mission-critical, actionable and non-adjudicated law enforcement information with officers in any other jurisdictions and to broadcast messages and warn nearby officers of crimes in progress. The COPsync Network has been used to rescue kidnapped children, capture terrorists and save police officers' lives. We believe COPsync to have the most advanced system known to protect law enforcement officers and the communities they are sworn to protect and serve."
